Hello Weirdness My Old Friend


I ran into an old friend today while at Lowe’s buying potting soil. I asked him how his kids were doing and he said that his youngest is being tested for the gifted program at his elementary school and his other son thinks his toothbrush is haunted. So there you go….Diversity, it’s a good thing.

Speaking as a Fruit Loop in a world of Cheerios myself, I say if you are going to be weird, do it with confidence and gusto. You never know when you will run into someone who is the same kind of weird you are, but when you do, you’ll have a bond for life. I didn’t tell my friend this, but I think his ‘other’ son and I may be kindred spirits.


About msmurfie

Shawn Murphy is a woman of mystery and power whose power is only exceeded by her mystery. She did not adjust well to the corporate life of cubicles and voicemail so went back to school and became an elementary school art teacher. Shawn enjoys walks in the woods despite being mostly allergic to the woods. She loves dogs, hates snakes, listens to self help CD’s and sings loudly to Beach Boys songs while driving. She tries to understand algebra , no luck so far. Past accomplishments include mending fences, literally and figuratively, folding a fitted sheet and shooting awesome photographs. Hopes to one day learn how to tie ties and sharpen knives properly. Easy going and painfully honest. Tends to share almost anything, much to the chagrin of friends and family.
